    Self Portrait Thread...
    There was a time when I was known on this site for my Self Portraits. For some reason I prefer not to go into I had gotten out of the spirit of taking them. However, with a new camera and new lighting equipment, I have begun to once again feel the urge to turn my lens around on myself.

    Here is my lateset effort. It is highly PS'd, but that is only because I was looking for a specific look.

    Please share some of your SP's here.

    Why not. Shot this morning while setting lighting for dance portraits of my daughter. I was just getting ready to re-aim the hairlight. Nikon D200, 70mm 1/25 -f/8 on sticks with a self timer.

    Remotes are fun, I got the one for my D70s (rare little buggers to find).

    anywho, from the Muskoka Regional Center...look closely and you'll see.

    Rock on.

    Long hair for the win, I think, I'm donating mine soon though, it drives me insane.

    Dunno if I did cross the line and trespass, they do curve inward at drastic angles dont they?

    Good to see an enthusiast! I mean, All the girls I know love my hair. But all the guys I know hate it.

    WTF is up with this world?

    Anyways, it doesnt get in my face that much. I trim the hair infront of it pretty frequently. And by me trim, I mean my mom.

    But yeah, I think this is a really great pic of me.

    Taken with my iMac. It's awkward to carry, and the battery life sucks, but I like the way it renders skin tones. Reminds me of Velvia.

    This was the day I got my new glasses. And my new hat. Warmest hat EVAR. Mmmm... hat.

    Wow thanks !
    I didn't think it was great by any means.
    I did fiddle about a bit in Lightroom because the LZ5 colour balance is a little iffy.

    They have been waiting on you. Up till now they didn't figure there was any real competition.

    Oh yeah I like your first one. As always great eyes or in this case eye.
